|Tri-Cleanse Internal Cleanser with Triphala, Herbal Formula|
Bulking Hydrophilic Fiber for Promoting Internal Cleansing
Many of today's bulking agents and internal cleansers produce noticeable and
seemingly beneficial effects. However, it is important to proceed with care
when using such products. While most are beneficial for elimination, they can
impair assimilation, or may include dependency-forming laxative agents, such
as senna leaf. Planetary Formulas Tri-Cleanse is different. It is formulated
specifically to support digestive and eliminative functions without causing
weakness or dependency. Some of the most highly respected bulking fibers, including
psyllium and flax seeds, are combined with the legendary Triphala combination
of Ayurvedic herbalism and with the digestive-supporting, warming carminatives
anise, ginger and citrus peel. The result is a comprehensive, balanced approach
to internal lower bowel cleansing and bowel regularity.
Many internal cleansing products rely solely on bulking agents. Though beneficial
for elimination, bulking agents alone may interfere with the digestive process.
Digestion is considered to be a "hot" process, involving hydrochloric
acid, and an active "breaking down" digestive medium. Bulking fibers
are hydrophilic, meaning they become very wet and therefore dilute the gastric
juices. This is why many people who undergo internal cleansing with bulking fibers
complain of gas, indigestion and abdominal bloating.
Tri-Cleanse: The Complete Internal Cleanser
Dietary fiber supplements add extra bulk to the daily diet, ensuring that you
receive adequate amounts for optimal elimination. Tri-Cleanse combines the husks
of the most widely used bulking agent, psyllium, with three other fibers: flax
seeds, guar gum and oat bran.
Flax seeds are highly nutritious, and, like psyllium, become extremely demulcent
(soothing and lubricating) when wet. Planetary uses flax seed that has been
partially defatted to prevent rancidity. Guar gum and oat bran are nutritive
fibers which soothe the digestive and eliminative systems.
Tri-Cleanse: A Balanced Combination
The care that went into the formula-tion of Tri-Cleanse reflects Planetary Formulas'
philosophy of creating balanced combinations you can depend on. The cooling nature
of its vital fibers is balanced by the warming carminative herbs ginger and anise.
Bitter wild yam root and tart citrus peel enhance the assimilation of foods.
Triphala: The Essential Difference
Triphala is a uniquely balanced herb-food preparation that has literally centuries
of traditional usage within the East Indian Ayurvedic tradition. An honored household
supplement in India, Triphala consists of three fruits. Harada is the most widely
used Ayurvedic herb, and, of all the herbs in Tri-Cleanse, the most cleansing.
It simultaneously imparts powerful toning action. Amla or Indian Gooseberry is
sour and astringent, promoting digestive secretions as it tones. It is a rich
source of vitamin C, which nourishes to assist the tissue in regaining its strength
and integrity. Additionally, its sweet and demulcent properties are pleasantly
soothing. Behada, the most beneficial of the three fruits for ridding the eliminative
tract of excessive mucus, also stimulates the production of digestive enzymes
as it tones.
